Prunes are well known for their dietary fibers and their mild laxative compounds. Prunes decrease the risk of colon cancer and hemorrhoids and help the digestive system in general. The insoluble fiber in prunes also provides food for the "friendly" bacteria in the large intestine. When these helpful bacteria ferment the insoluble fiber of prunes, they produce a short-chain fatty acid called butyric acid, which serves as the primary fuel for the cells of the large intestine and helps maintain a healthy colon. Prunes are also known to have very high levels of antioxidants.
